Canada is a North American country consisting of nine provinces and three territories. Located in the northern part of the continent, it extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean. Canada is the world's second-largest nation. and its common border with the United States is the world's longest land border.
The land that is now Canada has been inhabited for millennia by various Aboriginal peoples. Beginning in the late 15th century, British and French colonial expeditions explored, and later settled, the region's Atlantic coast. France ceded nearly all of its colonies in North America to Britain in 1763 after the Seven Years War.. In 1867, with the union of three British North American colonies through Confederation, Canada was formed as a federal dominion of four provinces. This began an accretion of provinces and territories and a process of increasing autonomy, culminating in the Canada Act 1982.

The country is officially bilingual and multicultural at the federal level, with a population of approximately 33.4 million as of 2011.

The Nation is developing nuclear technology. This will mainly be used for nuclear electricity generation, but it will be used to develop nuclear weapons for the ISL.
Canada Has a large navy capable of naval superiority in most battles. There are 12 fleets in the atlantic, 8 in the pacific. All fleets have at least 5 ships. The Air Force is developed, with A-10 Thunderbolts as the main fighter. The Canadian Army has a large advantage over most nations, large, versatile geography. By using the vast areas of the Canadian WIlderness, the army is able to hold a large resistance force against any occupier. By storming occupant centers of power, the resistant force will most likely be able to repel an occupying enemy.
Map of CanadaThis map represents what is Canadian Territory, and where major cities are.
This map is currently primitive and will be developed later on to a higher quality design with a much more sophisticated program.
Canada does not currently have any externally occupied or owned territories.
I hate the way images and headings screw each other over.
Will be remaking page this weekend.
